FT. PHOEBE RYAN
ALL WE KNOW
I can already hear this single following in the footsteps of Closer and being played to death on the radio.
Like other songs from the US DJ duo's recent work, All We Know boasts chill beats and calm vibes. It's the kind of song that does not necessarily call a lot of attention to itself, which means you can easily put it on in the background.
US pop singer Phoebe Ryan's breathy vocals also give the song a child-like vibe, which is almost haunting, especially when the song is about a dying relationship.
FT. TY DOLLA $IGN
BACON (HOODBOI REMIX)
It's really anybody's guess why the US pop singer chose to remix this song, given how forgettable it was when it was first released.
Fortunately, this version is an improvement.
As with the original, this single is about its singer enjoying being unattached because of the freedom it allows him.
The remix, however, is sped up with beats added. Together, they enhance the song.
The remix gives the song a sorely needed punch which could, hopefully, take the single a little further this time around.
FT. PETER GABRIEL A.I.
Once upon a time, OneRepublic's songs were unique, and they released songs that sounded unmistakably theirs. But that's not the case now.
A.I. isn't a bad song. It fits its futuristic title with a futuristic tune, complete with autotune. The vocals are expectably great, and the melody is good.
It's just not OneRepublic. Without Peter Gabriel's solo in the bridge, the song could have been from any other artist. And knowing OneRepublic, that is a shame.
